     “My name is Luz Elena Garcia and I am pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I am a first generation college student and I transferred to Fresno State in the Fall of 2018. The Provost Graduation Initiative grant gave me the opportunity to take some needed classes and for this reason I am expected to graduate Fall of 2020. After earning my degree from Fresno State I plan on applying to a Clinical Lab Scientist Program to pursue my dream job.
Further, I am very happy that I learned about this Provost Graduation Initiative
grant because it has made my goals of earning my degree in the Fall of 2020
possible. During these difficult times many of us have lost our jobs due to COVID-19
and this has caused a great deal of financial instability. As a daughter of immigrants and one struggling with financial hardship, the Provost Graduation Initiative grant was a great help.
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone behind the Provost Graduation Initiative grant. This grant helped me immensely in getting me a step closer to graduation and a job.”

“I wanted to take the time to thank Continuing and Global Education. Thanks to this division for offering the Provost Graduation Initiative, I
was able to take the course required for my major. One of my favorite things about Fresno State is that faculty and staff do everything in their power to give students the tools and resources needed in order for them
to succeed. I am proud to say that I received an “A” in the course that I took during the summer intersession, I would also like to thank our professors for being very passionate about their field of study. They made it possible for me to succeed in this course. I hope to continue to be successful in all my future courses. I am extremely proud of being a Bulldog!”
